lazy time entry.. hh:mm[a or p] apparently doesn't work?

bob.proctor says:

being a lazy sort, I tend to enter due dates:

today 2P

which promptly gets set to "today's date 2:00AM"

if I specify today 2PM

it works fine.

can you help a lazy old dude out by shortening the required A/P flag to "A a" or "P p"

How do others feel about this?

Would it be useful if we allowed you to type '2p' instead of '2pm'?

I've gotten tripped up by the same thing. It would be nice to have the shortcut.

I'm all for it. The "smarter" the time entry is, the better! I often think I'm typing "pm" but somehow miss the "m". It would be cool if it knew what I meant anyway.
